Yellow reminds me of the sun, Easter Lilies (Daffodils) reminds me of the candles at my church. Candles that are there to remind us that Jesus is the light of our world. Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
For some reason in Norway Easter is highly associated with lots of snow, cross country skiing, Easter eggs filled with chocolate, Orange soda, hot chocolate, big breakfasts with lots of eggs, Lamb steak, Mysteries, board games, oranges, daffodils, tulips, chickens, family gatherings and late nights.
To tell the truth, I am immensely homesick right now.
